Coming soon: Discussion Board improvements

What’s coming?

This tool has two major changes: a visual revamp and a new first post feature.

First post: This optional feature prevents students waiting to read other posts before making their contribution; if post first is enabled, the student must start a thread before they are given the option to read other students’ threads.

Interface changes: The interface in the new tools is cleaner and easier to use. Most noticeably, opening a thread will present all posts on the same page – you no longer have to open each post one by one.

Here’s how a thread looks now:

Here’s how it will look after the July update:

When’s it coming?

Following the VLE update in July.

How do I find out more?

We’ll be updating our VLE tool guides after the upgrade. If you need help or more information, contact us via the ISS Helpdesk.
